Ilex cornuta O'Spring

New foliage is purple, maturing to a variegated cream, gold, and pale- to medium-green color. Variegated foliage is best achieved in an exposure that includes part shade.

Want the 'WOW Factor'? O'Spring should be sited with darker leafed items  whose foliage is dark green, red, and burgundy.
